This was some of the best ice cream ever had. Creamy and rich with no ice. Perfect. Very friendly and efficient staff. Can't wait to go back.

As a child born in the early 50's my mother, grandparent's, aunt's took about 10-15 of 21 grandchildren to Jones Ice Cream during the summer months from our family cottage that was built when I was just a few months old. Jones Homemade Ice Cream will make you come back over and over.

Lots of customers, limes go out the door at times...good ice cream, and flavor selections. A local stopping place.....and nice looking t-Shirts and small assortment of souvenirs.

Many flavors of hard packed ice cream to pick from! They also have sandwiches and soup that are very tasty. The walls are decorated with pictures of the Baldwin area from the 1900's - very cool to look over!

I love the small town ice cream parlor feel of Jones'. The ice cream is so creamy. They don't skimp on the ingredients. They use large fresh tasting pieces of pecans, cherries, and fudge in their ice cream flavors. My favorite order is a small banana split. Jones' serves food as well. They close up in the winter months.

Great ice cream, atmosphere but needs some organization to their system. We were there on a very busy night but one service person walked around for five minutes dazed and confused. Others though did the bulk of the work

Been here on several occasions for cones, sundaes, and malteds. The home made ice cream is exceptional, and there are some flavors here you don't see everywhere. Take a quart home of the vanilla home for great root beer floats! There can be long lines on hot summer weekends.

We brought our granddaughters here and all enjoyed this home made ice cream or frozen yogurt with each one choosing their favorite toppings. There's always a line, but it moves fast and you can take it to go or sit inside. The staff is very efficient and friendly, and the customers are happy to be there, as were we.

We went to Jones because everyone raves about it. I was not impressed with the unfriendly service and the mediocre expensive ice cream! Seriously it's not that good! Moomers and House of Flavors, and Hudsonville are all much more delicious .
